There's no need to be sorry.  This was a useful conversation.  I think
it's worth recognizing the pain points users are hitting.  Even though
Dave's solution keeps "guix gc" as needed, it's helping highlighting how
much we need such solutions in order for things to be useful to users.

Which means, happy continued hacking, I guess! :)
